BELIEVE IT OR NOT. . . - page 3

This is a variation of the older thread "Did you know...", or "Do you know...". I thought that thread was a lot of fun, and feel there are still so many odd or funny things going on in the world... Read More

    I wrote a few sentences for the story but deleted them.
    Oh, what an ol' grey poupon you are! What's a few sentences between friends?

    amoLu! I didn't see; my goodness gracious, I'll have to go hunting now...or am I there already?
    By the way, jump right in because I can't decide which-where to take things. I had a few possibilities but couldn't FLESH them out.
    Lot's goin'on here, mostly at the periphery of my life, thank goodness. But it has been a distraction.

    HAVE AT IT!

    toomuchbaloney (and any others out there) - join the soap opera thread!!! Just go with it. A couple paragraphs or maybe more. Make up your own character, tag on to one already there. Travel to secret hideaways! Be dramatic; be silly; whatever!

    It really is fun to use 'soap opera-y words'. I have a new word that I'm just 'waiting with agonizing anticipation and holding my breath' to use.

    You just edit and add and rearrange.

    NSIME - they edited out the 'soapy' entries from 'exaggerated' and started a separate thread, 'The Breakroom Collective Novel'.

    I think there's a picture as you open up the blueroom side. I was thinking to the heroine more of a sultry brunette rather than a blonde!

    Yesterday I read on line that there is going to be a 2018 concert tour in the UK..."ROY ORBISON, LIVE onstage" . . .via his holographic image
    Wow! That sounds as exciting as "Disney on Ice"!

    There was a four car accident at 4:30 AM. A large black cow was standing in the middle of the road, in the rain and fog. The first car hit it and bumped it toward the east lane, the second car hit it and bumped it into the west lane. The third car was a jeep, which ran over the cow and subsequently flipped over, landing upside-down on it's roof.
    The only one hurt was the 750 lb cow, which died at the scene.

    Maybe the cow's name was Del Shannon?

The fourth car didn't see the accident(s) and hit the first car without touching the brakes.
    Geez! You wouldn't think a black cow could do so much damage!

    And the saddest, funniest thing is that it's all TRUE!

    Love how you interpret the gnus, Davey!

    I know this is more on the solemn end of the post's spectrum - heard a news snippet the other day.

    Puerto Rico has restored 46% of its electric power. Since Hurricane Marie 2+ months ago, 46% electric restored. YIPPEE!!! NOT!!!

    I am being VEERRRRY SARCASTIC here.

    Isn't it sad that 2 months later people were cheering when the electric powered up. US citizens still struggling ...

    And it's Thanksgiving coming up. I guess there's some things we have to be thankful for.
